In this paper we present a study of vision-based, human-recognition solutions in human-oriented, mobile-robot applications. Human recognition is composed of detection, tracking and identification. Here, we provide an analysis of each step. The applied vision systems can be conventional 2D, stereo or omnidirectional. The camera sensor can be designed to detect light in the visible or infrared parts of the electromagnetic spectrum. Regardless of the method or the type of sensor chosen, the best… Expand
